Silver Makes Triple Top Breakout, Expect Major Move Higher

Point and figure charts are one of the oldest and purest charting methods in the field of technical analysis. Point and figure charts are not commonly studied and practiced by technicians today as in the past. However, I use it as a simple indicator of areas of supply and demand and to indicate new trends. Warren Buffett said, "There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult." Especially in the field of technical analysis, analysts seem to love making complex formulas when in reality it is completely unnecessary.

Point and figure charting is a simple method of plotting price alone. It helps the chartist understand support, resistance and specific congestion areas. Congestion areas are areas of price where there was a previous battle of supply and demand. Often times when the price reaches this area it is difficult to break through. However, when the breakout does occur a major move begins. These charts are excellent at identifying specific price and relative strength breakouts.

Silver has just made a triple top breakout which signifies a possible major trend higher. Triple top buy signals are very powerful and hint at a move higher. Unlike bar charts projections are based on a horizontal count rather than vertical. This silver triple top breakout which may occur shortly could initiate a rise to $27. This target is also confirmed by the bar chart analysis which I showed on Sunday's update. On the point and figure relative strength chart a breakout has already occurred.

Usually relative strength breakouts precede price breakouts and confirm the move higher. Never in history has the gold to silver ratio been so high and a reversion to the mean could mean a significant move in silver.

I started reading charts at eleven years old. One day my father, a market trader and technician found his library of books on technical analysis mysteriously disappearing. He later found the textbooks under my bed. For many years day and night I studied technical analysis and charting, working and learning from my father who has over 50 years of trading experience. Technical analysis is my passion and love.

In 2001, I started noticing the junior mining stocks and gold as having a tremendous upside. For the past 9 years I have researched many juniors and have identified the major winners using technical analysis and finding top management.

I earned a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics and a Masters Degree. I learned most of my technical analysis from the school of hard knocks, managing real money for myself and for my family.

Constantly perfecting my craft, I have traded for two decades of success in many different markets. I have been asked to post ideas to some of my students who have taken my course in charting and technical analysis. I have made an excellent living trading stocks for myself.
